Everything in life has a purpose. The pur-
pose of food is to nourish the body. The
purpose of rain is to renew the earth. The
purpose of a yearbook is to preserve all the
memories and events of an entire year be-
tween its covers. While yearbooks are en-
joyed when first published, their true
value is seen years later. Yearbooks pro-
vide people with a way to relive the past.
They capture the highlights of school days
and friendships which are frequently go-
ing to be tested by time and distance.
Last year, Catawba College failed to pro-
duce a yearbook. Since there was not a
yearbook to preserve the memories, in
twenty years it will seem as if 1992-93
never happened. This year things will be
different. If this book serves its purpose,
the Sayakini will be a memoir to be trea-
sured. Last year, tradition was broken; this
year the Sayakini's BACK AND BETTER

Congratulating each and every graduate of
Catawba College was one of Dr. Wurster's
duties which he did with pride.
Interaction with students was very im-
portant to Dr. Wurster. His face was
seen at most college functions, including
this Homecoming football game.
Dr. Stephen H. Wurster
Thirteen years ago, in 1981, Catawba
College was looking for someone to step
in and fill the shoes as the 18th presi-
dent. Dr. Stephen H. Wurster jumped
right in and gladly accepted the posi-
tion. Along with his wife Jean, and
three children Gregory, Mark, and Eliz-
abeth (now 20, 18, and 15 respectively),
he moved to Catawba College.
Dr. Wurster received his B.A. in his-
tory from Ursinus College in Colle-
geville, PA, where he graduated cum
laude. He went to Drew University in
Madison, NJ where he earned a Bache-
lor of Divinity. At the University of
Iowa in Iowa City, he received his M.A.
and Ph.D., where he received the high
honor of being a Woodrow Wilson Fel-
lowship Scholar. Dr. Wurster later con-
ducted some post-doctoral work at Har-
vard. Before coming to Catawba, he
taught history while attending graduate
school at the University of Iowa. He also
taught a honors history course at Ball
State University in Indiana. Also at Ball
State, Dr. Wurster served as Dean of
Planning and Faculty Development and
as the Assistant to the Provost.
Along with his outstanding creden-
tials, Dr. Wurster came to Catawba with
some goals in mind. He wanted to see
improvement in the student body, a rise
in prospective students qualifications,
and build and stabilize enrollment.
Also, Dr. Wurster hoped to see the num-
ber of faculty with doctrites increase, to
retire the school's debt, and to build the
endowment fund. Through his persis-
tence and determination, Dr. Wurster
accomplished these goals.
Dr. Wurster was very fond of Cat-
awba. He saw a great potential for
growth and development. He enjoyed
the sense of community between faculty
and students that was present. Also, he
admired the long tradition of mutual re-
spect between Catawba and the Salis-
On August 28, 1992, the Catawba Col-
lege community lost a very special mem-
ber. It lost a president, but it also lost a
friend. Though time will continue to
pass, Dr. Wurster will be remembered
by others as an honest and dedicated
man with a quick wit and high stan-
dards both for himself and others. It is
in his memory that the 1993-94 Saya-
kini is dedicated.

Saturday Night Live Comedian Jay
Wigwam Productions had a very
successful year in 1993-94. Their sea-
son started at a rapid pace with five
shows in only four weeks. It began
with Barbara Bailey Hutchinson and
1964: As The Beatles during the first
week back to school. Next, Wigwam
Productions hosted the "First An-
nual Comedy Jam" starring Jay
Mohr and Anthony Clark. "Denny
Dent and His Two Fisted Art At-
tack" dazzled the crowd with paint-
ings of Billy Joel, Jim Morrison,
Elvis Presley, and Jimi Hendrix.
Dean "Hound Dog" Welch pur-
chased both the Presley and Hendrix
paintings. Parent's Weekend saw co-
median Randy Levin and Rock and
Roll Hall of Famer Roger McQuinn
take the stage in Keppel Audito-
rium. The rest of first semester in-
cluded musician Rick Kelley, rock
and roll lecturer Barry Drake, and
everyone's favorite hypnotist Tom

The Spencers Magic and Illusion,
Craig Karges' psychic powers, and a
cast of thousands. A special thanks

Considered to be the most creative activity on
campus, and possibly the most innovative, "The
Talk Show" unites the many different groups of
Catawba and strives to destruct sectionalism.
The Talk Show, produced and performed en-
tirely by the students, involves every detail of a
full network talk show, including performance,
technical sound and lighting, and audio-visual
Founders Kevin, Leonard, Mike Wiley, and Jim
tally agree that they created the Show in hopes of
showing the student body that regardless of major
or interest, all students can join together to share
common interests, a variety of cultural back-
grounds, and to simply just have fun.
The Show includes guests from the faculty, stu-
dent body, and community, live entertainment,
and even commericals.
Since its creation in January of 1993, "The Talk
Show" has gathered a great following and is an ac-
tivity which every student may be involved.

Parents Weekend. Some students look for-
ward to the familiarity of home, others just
look forward to the things they forgot in Au-
gust, and still others dread seeing the reason
why they left home. The students whose par-
ents couldn't make it were "adopted for a day"
by friend's families. From any perspective, it is
an anticipated weekend. While some families
arrived Friday night, most of the events hap-
pened Saturday. Friday night's entertainment
consisted of comedian Randy Levin and Roger
McQuinn, a rock and roll legend. Parents be-
gan Saturday by meeting the professors. The
student center was divided into sections de-
pending by departments. Families did a round
robin meeting with all of their child's profes-
sors. This is also a chance to know how their
child has been doing. Following this, there was
a very nice picnic for families. Lunch could be
eaten under a tent or in the sun. The President
of Catawba College, Fred Corriher, gave a
speech welcoming families to Parents Week-
end. However, the most exciting part of the
day was sitting in the packed stands to watch
our football team beat Mars Hill, 35-34. Proud
parents and families enjoyed rooting on the
team. The day is usually ended by a special
dinner. Students look forward to this restau-
rant dinner. All in all, everyone was pleased
whether their parents were here or if they were
"adopted for a day. "
The mighty Indians ran out ready to
crush Mars Hill.

The Service Of
Sunday, October 3, 1993 marked a historic day at Catawba Col-
lege. Surrounded by family, friends, colleagues and students, Jo-
seph Frederick Corriher, Jr. was installed as the 19th President of
Catawba College. In his Investiture Address, President Corriher
commented, " We gather here this evening not to reflect on the life
of a single individual but to celebrate the life of an institution."
The Service of Investiture indeed paid tribute to the vitality of Cat-
awba, but President Corriher was the main focus. During the ser-
vice, he received the symbols of the Office of President which in-
clude the Robe, Hood, Cap, Seal, and Mace.
After the official installation, President Corriher delivered his
Investiture Address. During his speech, he used a continued meta-
phor comparing the "life of Catawba College to a rich tapestry, wo-
ven over time from yarns of rich color (Catawba's faculty, staff,
and students) on a loom which has been guided by many hands
(the eighteen former presidents)." President Corriher expressed his
hope that the four attributes of scholarship, character, culture, and
service are "imbedded in our hearts and our minds, and reflected
and made evident in our actions."
Following his address, President Corriher and Dr. J. Michael
Wilson, Provost and Dean of the College, conducted the Act of
Convocation which officially started the 1993-94 school year.
The Service of Investiture was indeed special. For the Catawba
College community it marked the beginning of a new presidency.
For President Corriher it was one of the most important events in
his professional and personal life. This unique service will be re-
membered by all who were in attendance as a historic day in the
life of President Corriher and Catawba College.

actly who is Fred Corriher?"
The list below tells a few facts
about Catawba's 19th president:
— His grandparents, Lotan and
Ida Linn Corriher, attended Old
Catawba 100 years ago.
— Both his father and grandfa-
ther have served on the board

— While at Catawba, he served
as president of his Freshman
Class and SGA, as well as a pho-
tographer for the yearbook.
— He was a member of the
Board of Trustees from 1984 to
— On January 12, 1993, Fred
Corriher was elected the 19th
presiden t of Ca ta wba.
— In 1983, Corriher was one of

A major influence on social activities at Catawba is dorm life. The campus has seven dorms
for students to reside in. Three of the dorms, Hollifield, Barger-Zartman, and Stanback all
house women students. Salisbury-Rowan, Pine Knot, and Abernethy are male dorms with
Woodson Hall being the only co-ed dorm on campus. Strong friendships are formed among all
people living in dorms which enables much interaction between a variety of students. While
some freshmen might find the idea of living with a stranger to be frightening, many find the
experience very fun and exciting. When asked how they felt about their experience, freshmen
roommates Jen Ruiz and Karen Mealey said, "We were very lucky to have gotten along so well
and it really made the transition to college much easier. " However, after living on campus for
four years, the excitement quickly wears off. Senior Deanna Taylor stated that the reason she
likes Hying in a dorm is the fact that she "likes the convenience of being so close to every-
thing." All in all, the predominant attitude of students living on campus is a positive one be-
cause students are so close to one another and partake in many social activities.

Many students at Catawba College partici-

study program allows a student to work on
campus to earn extra money. This money
can be given directly to the student in the
form of a check or it can be applied to their
cost of tuition. There are a variety of jobs in
the work study program such as teacher as-

The students at Catawba College vary, not just
in hair color or nationality but in their dreams
and expectations. Students arrive with many dif-
ferent ideas than when they leave.
Freshmen begin college with thoughts of free-
dom from their parents and weekend parties.
They don't have to worry about breaking curfews
because no one will be waiting up for them. Some
Even though Kevin

at a loss for words
aren't serious enough to take on the responsibilty
of studying and others dive right in.
After a year of "experimenting" as freshmen,
sophomores come back ready to declare their ma-
jor. An advantage of having one year under your
belt is you know which professors to take and
which to avoid.
Juniors hopefully have their majors declared
and are taking the necessary courses. They are
excited knowing that they are going to graduate
in a couple of semesters.
Most seniors try to get living accomodations
off campus. Some are successful and others are
not. Either way, they are all trying to get their
Gened courses and courses for their major fin-
ished. Many seniors stay in the area over the
summer for jobs.
Every student has their own dreams and expec-
tations at Catawba College. Despite our differ-
ences, we are all alike in that we want to succeed.

Last year the Catawba's Girls Basketball team made it to National's and this year
they are coming on strong once again. With the help of returning players, such as
Stephanie McCormick, Monte Jackson, Tammy Mclntyre, Tonya Thompson, and
Angie Grubbs, the team has a strong backbone but able to build with promising
new members. Also with a new coach, Cindy Connelly, the team is able to build a
new and exciting game.

There is no better baseball team in the SAC than Catawba College
When the Indians take the field every fan knows that something special
is going to happen. In the fall the Indians took a three-game tournament
by routing Belmont- Abbey, High Point University, and Pfeiffer College
For the past two years Catawba has been the SAC champions, and the In-
dians look to continue their winning ways and make history by becom-
ing the first team ever to win the championship three years in a row.
The guys are pumped, and led by senior captains Jason Wallace and Rob-

Women's Softball is one of the highlights of the spring sports season.
The Lady Indians take the field this season hoping to turn up the heat in
the conference. A group of veterans along with some talented freshman
hope to take it to their opponents and score some heavy duty runs.
Pitching is the hardest po-
sition on the field un-
qj less you're a catcher.
This year, Catawba added lacrosse to
its list of intercollegiate sports. Consid-
ered as a spring sport, the lacrosse team
did play an exhibition match during the
fall, where Catawba scored its first goal.
This new sport has attracted many
students. People practicing on campus
lawns was a common sight. Coach Peter
Bourque is excited about the arrival of
lacrosse and looks forward to building a

Athletics is an important dimension to any
school, and it is not different here at Catawba.
This year, Catawba has added Women's Swim-
ming and Diving to athletics. Coach Martinelli
has taken on the responsibility to build and
mold what we all hope will be a promising new
sport for Catawba students to enjoy. It may be a
new sport, but its participants spend many hours
a week preparing for upcoming swim meets!

Proud To Support Catawba
In Memory Of
Jerry lee Poole, Jr.
The following is a song he often sang:
"My Way" (adapted by his family)
My friends, I've lived a life that's full,
I've traveled lots of highways,
Regrets I've had a few,
But then again, too few to mention,
I did what I had to do without exemption.
I've loved, I've laughed and cried,
I've had my fill of joy, my share of losing,
To think I did all that, and may I say,
"Not in a shy way."
For what is a man, what has he got,
If not himself, then he has not,
To say and do the things he truly feels,
I've faced it all, and stood tall.
Yes, it was MY WAY.
Jerry chose Catawba College for its philosophy, educational
values and the goals he wanted to achieve. Jerry commuted to
Catawba so he could work at Roses during school months and
at Norandal in the summer months to help pay for his college
tuition. An important contributing factor in Jerry's choosing
Catawba College was so he could be around his friends. Friends
were very important to him. His friends often called him "One
of the good guys. "
Jerry was with us for twenty -one wonderful years. We
watched him grow into an outstanding, loving, and caring
young man. We were so very proud of him.
Jerry loved and enjoyed life and lived it to the fullest. Jerry's
memory will live with us forever.

The 1993-94 school year will be remembered by all Catawba stu-
dents for something. Many noticeable and noteworthy events took
place. The largest freshman class ever entered Catawba College. In
October, the 19th President of the college, Mr. J. Fred Corriher, was
officially installed. Two new sports, men's lacrosse and women's
swimming were added as Catawba made the switch to NCAA Divi-
sion II athletics. Students will remember the cold January weather
which caused classes to be cancelled one day until lunch. Also,
"The Talkshow" celebrated its one year anniversary. The women's
soccer team won the conference championship, in only its fourth
year of existence. These and many other memorable events oc-
curred. Catawba, like the Sayakini. is BACK AND BETTER THAN
"I knew 1 should have tried out
for football, " thinks Matt Miller.
English professor by day, the Blind Melon Bee by night.
During the Homecoming fes-
tivities, Claudia Augello expe-
riences the gyrospin.
This year I had the distinct honor and privilege of serving as the editor of the
Sayakini . As many of you know, no yearbook was published for the 1992-93 school
year. After a year without an annual, I was determined to make this book the best it
could be. What you see between the covers is the result of long hours of work by
many people. I want to take this opportunity to thank those people who made con-
tributions to the 1993-94 Sayakini .
First and foremost, a big thank you goes out to the wonderful staff who worked
long and hard to meet deadline after deadline: Renee, Traci, Julia, Debbie, Daphne,
Jen, Jerry, Jennifer, Susi, Audrey, April and Torri.
Thanks to Ms. Jennifer Hubbard for serving as our advisor. It meant a lot to
know that you were behind me.
Bill and Rosemary Hall deserve credit for all their hard work. Thanks for all the
help, advice and the camera!
Dr. Carlton — thanks for being so understanding when I would work on year-
book stuff in your class. I appreciate it.
1 want to thank the college faculty, staff, and coaches for their cooperation with
pictures. Special thanks to Dennis Davidson for supplying some athletic photos and
Lisa Misenheimer for sending memos when they needed to be.
To Mrs. Jean Wurster, thanks for all your help while working on the dedication.
It is our privilege to dedicate this book to the memory of your husband.
This book would not be complete without the hard work of David Setzer. Some
of the photos included were taken by David. "Thank you" cannot begin to express
To Valerie Zoppi — thanks for selling some ads.
Thanks to Jess, Jen, Karen, Jason, and Jenn (you know who you are!) for all the
little things you did to help me out near deadline time!
Also, thanks to Bill Pieczynski and Sharon LaFargue for taking some pictures for
me when no one else could. I appreciate it!
Last, but most certainly not least, a huge thank you to President Corriher. With-
out him behind this project, there would be no yearbook. It was his interest and co-
operation in reviving the yearbook that helped produce what you see before you.
From the bottom of my heart I say "Thank You" for all your time, patience, interest
and backing. It could not have been done without you.
I apologize if I've left anyone out. It was not intentional, I promise!
A final note to the staff — this book is something to be proud of. Take pride in all
Thanks again to everyone!
